Weekly News Digest - 7 March 2014

News and alerts for the first week of March.
Bobbi Brown is extending its make up range with two new products. This week sees the launch of CC Cream SPF 35 (£29), and is cited by Bobbi as the essential prep step, providing a perfect complexion when paired with foundation. The comfortable texture blends seamlessly into skin for a smooth and even canvas, and offers all-day shine control and broad-spectrum UV protection to prevent signs of premature ageing. Available in three shades – Pale Nude, Warm Nude and Golden Nude – it contains soft focus powders to enhance luminosity and disguise imperfections, along with brightening and moisturising ingredients.  

In my relentless search for the holy grail of colour correction for my pale skin with very high colour, I will definitely be reviewing this in the near future.

Meanwhile, Art Stick is a dual-function lip product that claims to combine the ease of a lipstick with the precision of a pencil. Inspired by countless seasons backstage at Fashion Week, the creamy, moisturising Art Stick formula gives rich, mate colour that blends effortlessly onto lips, leaving them looking and feeling supple and smooth. The Art Stick will be on counter on May 2014 exclusively at Selfridges.

Sisley unveils Cellulinov 1 March 2014
Launched on 1 March 2014, Sisley unveiled Cellulinov, an anti-cellulite body treatment that claims to combat the appearance of cellulite to smooth, enhance and renew skin. In tests, skin dimples were smoothed and reduced in size by 30% after four weeks of twice-daily use. 

The key ingredient in the new launch is a powerful plant-based active ingredient, longan seed extract, which tackles the appearance of cellulite on two levels: it limits the growth of fat cells (adipocytes) by inhibiting the PAI-1 protein that feeds them, and acts in conjunction with Indian lotus extract to preserve the extracellular matrix, slowing the expansion of new fat cells in both number and size.  In addition, extracts of soya and alkekengi calyx help to reduce skin slackening, and shea butter, sunflower and rapeseed oil smooth and moisturise skin. 

Finally, watch out for the following TSVs this coming week:
